As you may or may not have noticed, I have been in a sort of political sabbatical for the past few months, albeit for good reasons. We just finished building our long- awaited new pool on our new house, which, as you can tell from the heat-wave we are suffering in South-Florida, will only serve to help us relieve some of the inevitable stresses associated with watching the fake news every day.
Thank God for the good people at Fox News, Hannity, Laura, Tucker, Martha, Judge Jeanine and the rest. Were it not for them, I would probably be writing this narrative from some mental institution upon my family’s implementing the “Baker Act” on me – case you are not familiar with this Act, this is a Florida Statute under the Florida Mental Health Act of 1971, which allows for the “involuntary” institutionalization and examination of an individual suspected of having a mental illness.
Anyways, ironically, if there has ever been a time deserving of political narratives to shed some light on all the turmoil that is going on around us, this is it, no doubt about it. But again, my chores as a construction supervisor, just kept me so busy that, despite my best wishes for otherwise keep on writing my political blogs, the latter took a temporary back-seat to all else going on in my life. It was not until early today, when I received a text message from my dear sister-in-law Yamile Pou. “Yami” as those close to her call her, asked to me to write a much-needed narrative on the Florida gubernatorial race – a race filled with all kinds of controversies akin to pretty much all that is going on in the nation as the November 2018 Midterm elections come to fruition. So much is at stake.
Well, Yami, this one is for you. Let me preface my assessment of the Florida race, by sharing with you some of my forefront perceptions on all that’s going on. For years now, I have been hesitantly writing about communism in the U.S. Starting with my article “The Beginning of the End”, written in the 2008 presidential elections, followed by my book bearing the same name, published in 2012, all I have talked about for years now, has been the threat of communism coming to the U.S. Throughout my writings, many of you challenged my allegations. Many thought my warnings were a far-out cry; not in the U.S., it could not happen, many believed – Marxism and Communism was a match-made-in-heaven for third-world countries and/or for other nations in the world but not in the U.S. For nations with struggling economies; for nations with autocratic self-serving leaders, who cared nothing about their citizens and all for their own endowment.
Matter of fact, it was precisely this “denial”, the one I blame for all that is going in today’s political landscape – as we speak. I personally think it should be transparently obvious to all nowadays that communism has made great strides in taking over this great nation. I think you will agree with me that, for the first time ever in the nation, Communism is now rearing its ugly head, unabashedly, blatantly, and in full view for all to acknowledge its presence.
For years now, I dare say, our enemies have successfully manipulated a vernacular of deceit which, throughout time, has taken a life of its own – a lexicon where terms such liberals, progressives and leftists, have been inventively reintroduced to the American public as preferred euphemisms for the terms Marxist and Communist. I say its time we expose the truth to America. Enough is enough. I am utterly repulsed with the pontification of the words ‘liberal and socialist’ as surrogates for the word ‘communist’.
You see, many Americans would have had a hard time dealing with and/or accepting the use of the term “communism”, per say, if they, the left, had dared used it in its literal context, whereas now, even though the term itself is non-existing, it seems to me that the rats have come out of hiding; they have come out of the closet. Finally, a close pseudonym is being used bringing us closer to the truth than ever before. Finally, the word “socialism” is now liberally used to describe most of the nation’s communist platforms embraced by the democratic party – the “Democratic Socialist Party” as they like to call themselves.
Point I am trying to make my friends, it’s all out in the open. It is there for you to virtually touch. For those of you who doubt me, it cannot be more evident. Just look around you. No longer do they [the left] see a need to go about it elusively snitching their way to gaining power and control of the nation. It’s all out in the open. Go no further than looking at the platforms of some of these so-called “progressive socialists”, including Florida’s very own Andrew Gillum – which happens to be the center point of my narrative today.
My fellow-Floridians come the Midterm elections, your choice is crystal-clear, just take a quick glance at Mr. Gillum’s platform as a self-described “progressive”.
- Supports the replacement of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement – abolition of ICE.
- Seeks to expand Medicaid.
- Supports the removal of Confederate monuments.
- Wants to raise corporate tax rate to 7.75% from current 5.5%.
- Wants voting rights for felons.
- Calls for the impeachment of Donald Trump.
- Believes in global warming.
- Opposed Trump’s administration decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.
Mind you, Mr. Gillum is not alone. Not by a long stretch of the imagination. Take our darling winner of the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Again, Ocasio-Cortez is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. I repeat: a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. There you go, out in the open. Alexandria has made headline news almost every day since the day she was elected on June 26, 2018. The fake news has embraced her as some sort of female Messiah – the next coming of salvation for mankind.
At twenty-eight years old, Ocasio-Cortez is a younger version of the old communist Bernie Sanders. Her youth brings new hopes for a defeated Democratic Party, whose only hope for regaining their lost power relies on radical, if yet utopian agendas, much the same way that Karl Marx, once sought out to change the world with a counter-culture revolution in the 1800’s – an ideology which some 200 years after-the-fact has proven to be all but a failed and flawed creed. A botched doctrine relying mostly on class struggles and hate-filled envies as mainstay motivations, while having left behind a trail of bloodshed and the death of over 100 million people throughout their miserable journey in history.
Ocasio-Cortez is but one of millions of romantic young American men and women, who don’t even know the meaning of the word communism. Matter of fact, I think that for the most part, the radical base of the Democratic Socialists is composed of, on the one hand, a universe of romantic ideologues, albeit underachievers, racists, and overall losers, who believe in living off from government and from the better fitted of the classes, and, on the other hand, the George Soros’ and Tom Steyer’s of the world – the mega-rich characters who look upon communism as but just a means of amassing greater wealth through the exploitation of the ideologues.
I could go and on. I would want to share with all of you my thoughts on the impending mayhem and havoc regarding the socialist upheaval aimed removing Donald Trump from the Presidency, but I shall save that for another narrative. Suffice it say that I am confident that, come November, Republicans will, in fact, sweep the nation again just like we did in 2016 by electing Donald Trump. I don’t believe in the polls anymore, and I am confident that the GOP will keep, maybe even expand their presence in both the Senate and the House as well. Trust me. I believe you will see a Republican wave of winning in November.
As for us here in Florida, I truly believe that the State’s constituency is not ready, not now anyways, for yet another black communist, to govern our state. The wounds left behind by the likes of a Barack Obama are still very much open. Maybe with time people shall forget, but not now. I very much urge Mr. Ullum to just forget about it. Stay within the confines as Mayor of our own Florida swamp in Tallahassee as we are not ready for you, sir, not just yet anyways.
As for Ocassio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, and Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren, I say, keep it up. Keep up the good work. Your rantings; your coming out of the closet; your most evident Marxists platforms; your relentless campaigns of hate towards a president who has done everything that is right for making America great again, has not gone unnoticed by magnanimous universe of true Americans who had been, for the most part, disparaged by your Democratic Socialists of America, thus your loss in 2016 elections.
As for you my fellow Floridians, I just would like to close by offering some friendly reminders, mostly directed to all my Cuban-Americans and Venezuelan voters in the reading audience. To the Cubans, just remember a vote for Andrew Gillum is equivalent to a vote to extend the Castro dynasty; ditto for the Venezuelans – a vote for Gillum is a vote equivalent for extending Maduro’s reign of destruction. To all the Florida black voters, all 16% of you, I say wake up and smell the coffee. For years now, the Socialist Democratic party has manipulated your vote, as though they owned you, as though they had a right to think on your behalf.
Over the past decades, African-Americans have been under the spell of the Socialist Democrats, who have capitalized on a history of racial injustices as a preferred tool for the party’s own self-serving advancement. I truly hope that, come November, black voters, use this privilege wisely and not just do it based on the skin color of the candidates, but on the issues that impend on both you as an individual and you as part of an important minority.
To the rest of the voting readers, may I politely remind you that a vote for Andrew Gillum is a vote for allowing illegal immigrants to continue flocking into our nation unrestricted, while many of them, outright criminals, are ready, willing and able to kill innocent Americans, all the while as Socialist Democratic judges throughout the nation, continue to give them a free pass to pursue their criminal careers. A vote for Andrew Gillum is a vote for raising our taxes; a vote for Andrew Gillum is a vote to undermine the thriving economic achievements gained under governor Rick Scott.
I think we all know better. Florida happens to be one of the most important swing states in the nation. The choices are as clear as ever before in the history of the state, we can either vote for full blown “socialist / communist” or…we can vote for Ron DeSantis, Trump’s endorsed candidate to continue in Scott’s path of keeping Florida one of the greatest states in the nation. Your call. God bless America.
